It's week 2 of this session of my appearances on the lovely Chocolate Baroque DT Blog and I have another card. I have a lot of birthdays (not me personally of course, one a year is more than enough ;D) at the beginning of the year so quite a few cards are needed and what better to make them with than beautiful Chocolate Baroque stamps and I get to kill two birds with one stone.
From the recent Chocolate Baroque sale I managed to knock a couple of stamp sets off my wish list and I used two of them to make todays card.
I cut a 14.5 cm square from a piece of brusho'd card I had from a play session with these lovely pots of powder. As it was a bit too dark for the background I wanted I brayered a very rough coat of white acrylic paint to tone it down a little. I then stamped the images from the Sketchy Doodle Landscape set and single stamp SKF Leaf Stem once onto the background and the two main ones again onto old book pages.
I painted the areas I wanted with Distress Inks, cut them out and glued them over the images on my background except for the butterfly which I stuck onto white card before cutting it out.
I stamped the sentiment from the Mackintosh Sentiments set (another sale purchase ;D) onto a scrap of the brusho'd card, stuck it in position and then went round the edges with a black Pitt pen before adhering the whole thing to a 15 cm square card base. Finally I attached the little butterfly.
I'm so glad I bought these quirky stamps and I hope you like my card. I'll have my final Guest Designer spot piece for you next Wednesday. Thanks for stopping by today.
